The book starts with the characteristics of ICG and photodynamic cameras/endoscopes, followed by detailed descriptions of the applications of ICG fluorescence imaging in various areas such as ocular surgery, neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, and plastic surgery. It also covers identifying sentinel lymph nodes in breast cancer as well as cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, and provides valuable information for hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgeons, such as identifying tattooing of liver segments and bile leakage. Written entirely by experts in their respective areas, ICG Fluorescence Imaging and Navigation Surgery offers an essential resource for surgeons operating on cancers and vascular disorders in the brain and cardiovascular systems and in plastic surgery. ------------- Damnant quod non intellegunt!
